The bag is beautiful and the shop owner is very friendly and helpful. I love it!
You Can Be The Boss of Me
I have been looking for the perfect bag, for like, forever. Seriously. Have you seen my closet?
So I understand about your bag issues. Your bag. It has to hold everything, without looking like you could carry an ocean liner in it. It has to be easy to use and easy to carry. It should cheerfully take daily abuse from you, and never complain or show strain.
Moreover, your bag should say something meaningful about you -- like, "I like to read books"; or "I love science".
About 10 years ago, I decided to stop buying bags that disappoint, and started making my own bags. I (re)learned how to sew, and I gradually got better at making purses, messenger bags and backpacks. When I was good enough to make my own patterns I started publishing tutorials. And when family and friends started asking me to make them purses as gifts, I started my Etsy shop (originally called Artsi Bitsi) in 2008.
These days my bag obsession has evolved beyond construction, and become more about embellishing them with colorful printed designs. I also do a lot of custom orders, so I can make you something that is really original and reflective of your personality.
